Florida Teacher Arrested for Selling Xanax
A Florida teacher at Central Avenue Elementary in Kissimmee was arrested after allegedly selling Xanax and acid to an undercover police officer.
Cheryl Heineman, a third grade teacher is facing charges of delivery and sale of Schedule IV narcotics, said police. A man named Jack Lindsey was also arrested on the same charges.
Dana Schafer, a spokeswoman for Osceola County schools said Heineman will not be teaching kids in the classroom, and will be assigned to a location where no kids are present.
According to police, an undercover officer called Lindsay to buy Xanax and acid. The cop said he had bought drugs from Lindsey on three other occasions.
Lindsay told the undercover agent that “his girl” would meet him in the parking lot on 13th Street in St. Cloud.
A woman in a minivan who was identified as Heineman gave the officer 3 pills of Xanax and acid tabs for $100.
Xanax is a commonly prescribed drug to help with the symptoms of panic and anxiety. It belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines.
Lysergic acid diethylamide, abbreviated LSD, or acid, can be a dangerous drug. It can trigger feelings of extreme anxiety as well as panic attacks. Some reports of PTSD have been reported after some extremely bad acid trips.
There are some studies which suggest incidences of LSD induced psychosis in people who were healthy prior to taking the drug.
The deal was recorded by police, and they identified Heineman through her license plate on her car.
The school district said Heineman was hired in 1990 as a non-instructional employee. She got her college degree in education and started teaching in 2005. She started to teach third grade at Central Avenue Elementary at the beginning of this school year.
